But only at 2:35am. And from random spots in the house.
but that assumes you don't want ANY text messages displayed. I have need to see most text messages when in lock mode, and there's no way to screen this specific type of notification out.

I can easily see how to capitalize on this by releasing it via pay per view/on-demand or other services (assuming, of course, these providers can do a better job at protecting their servers than Sony did in the first place).

I had the (dis)fortune to observe firsthand how some of these cable giants played the game in late 1999/early 2000, and wished I had read that book before taking the consulting gig.
World is full of stupid people. Easy to imagine someone on the witness stand saying "We kept telling Ed not to text-and-drive. It's such a shame that he didn't want to wait until he stopped to read my text message to pick up milk."
And since you can't have both IE6 and IE8 installed at the same time on the same machine without jumping through hoops (and apparently it's too difficult a learning curve for IT to support Firefox for some 99% of the apps while relegating IE6 only for use with this one application in question), we're stuck with IE6 as a corporate standard.
Which also means we can't get off XP easily either. Bleah all around.
Ya ever wonder if Slashdot had been a Facebook app, whether anyone would have used it?
SO.... calling it a "20-girl Go-go-rama. Free buffet" would be perfectly legal?
Not that the slashdot crowd would be in to either football or go-go-rama's. Or even know 20 girls to begin with.
